Next week I will have lived in the Boston area for a full year! I will have been living in the Real World, away from school and the family for TWO years! I will have had this blog for two years, too.
A lot has changed over the past year! I am now a barista, for instance, which is invigorating, if a little overwhelming for someone who has worked neither retail nor service before. (Spellcheck suggests I replace barista with barrister; I am not a barrister).
I’ve made more friends, and I’ve kept doing theater at a steady rate! I’ve gotten to know this area pretty well, and now that early summer is in full swing, I can almost forgive (an admittedly mild) winter for lasting so long. I’ve learned to play the ukulele adequately! I’ve learned a lot about vegetarian cooking. I’ve learned some Norwegian!
Life is pretty nice, I think, even if I have no vision of myself in 5 years whatsoever–like, not even a glimmer of a hint of what or where I’ll be. Heck–even next year I can only envision where I’ll be because I’ve signed a year-long lease starting in September. On the “Life is pretty nice” side of things, here are three botanical photos I took the other day! I have not really put much of my photography on this blog, as I was REALLY into photography in college, then lost my spare camera battery…but now I own a sweet camera my brother got me, so I should get back on the horse.
I was going to upload a bunch, but maybe I should use a photo website to do that and link it here.
Also here another song I wrote for fun:
